The gallery’s competition for August 2017 was the 7th Annual “Open” Art Competition. 2D and 3D artists (including photography) from around the world, were called upon to make online submissions for possible inclusion in to the Gallery’s September 2017 online group art exhibition.
There was no theme for this art competition and the gallery accepted art which was representative or in abstract form for possible inclusion into this art exhibition.
The art competition and the submission process for the artists began in July 2017 and concluded on August 27, 2017. The gallery received 781 entries from 26 different countries from around the world, including Australia, Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Costa Rica, Croatia, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Romania, Russia, Scotland, Slovakia, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Kingdom and Wales. In addition, the gallery received entries from 38 different states.
The exhibition has been divided into three media categories. Painting & Other Media, Photography & Digital Media and 3 Dimensional Art. In addition, there is an overall Winning Artists Category, which is the “best of the best” and consists of the ten (10) best entries comprised from the 3 media categories.
The gallery also included Special Merit awards and Special Recognition awards for outstanding art. Many of the artists in either of these groups could have easily been included in the upper tier of our winners, as their art was also exceptional.
